Counselling Services

Registered clinical psychologists and wellness counsellors, along with supervised doctoral residents and graduate students, provide short-term therapy for currently registered students. 

Short-term counselling can take the form of a single one-hour session to a maximum of 8 one hour sessions per student per academic year, depending on the type of service required. 

Students come to the SWCC with a variety of personal issues, such as stress, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, family-of-origin conflict, loneliness, abuse, eating disorders, trauma, anger management, substance abuse, gender, and sexuality.

Students will receive an initial appointment and one of the following pathways will be an appropriate response to the students' concerns:

Students with concerns that exceed our scope of practice will be assisted by the SWCC in order to identify their concerns and facilitate connections to appropriate community resources. During our COVID-19 response, the provision of student services are conducted remotely and delivered via a virtual room.
